starting 2010 off right- with a GIVEAWAY

Hello bloggers. I'm coming to you live from Istanbul, Turkey. After a long and adventurous day (some good, some bad- will post about it in a separate entry), TLS and I are finally back in our hotel room for the night.

As you can imagine, it is hard for me to go on vacation and not shop. Today, I may have gone a little scarf-crazy and somehow (I really don't know how- I SWEAR!) wound up with one green, three pink, and one beige scarf. Fortunately for you, I also shopped for all of you as well.

Since I was not able to do a giveaway for December as I would have liked, I can think of no better way to start of 2010 than with a giveaway. The winner of this giveaway will receive two pashmina scarves- one pink and one green. (Because in my wardrobe, pink is a neutral.)


To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment on this entry by Saturday, January 9th, at Midnight EST for one entry. You can get an additional entry for being a follower. Post this giveaway on your blog or sidebar for a third entry. Tweet this giveaway (@whaleflipflops) for a fourth giveaway. You will also receive one additional entry for each person who enters and says she was referred by you.

I know that I have loyal readers who are not registered blogger users. Unfortunately, due to the high number of spam comments that I received, I had to disable anonymous comments. If you are not a registered user and would like to enter this giveaway, please email me at whaleflipflops {@} gmail {.} com and I will enter you manually.

In the words of the great Lilly Pulitzer- Wear Pink and make the boys wink.
